Patrick Anderson is professor in structure and rheology of complex fluids. He studied Applied Mathematics at the Eindhoven University of Technology with Prof. Dr. Arnold A. Reusken as his advisor. In 1999 he received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the same university with Prof. dr. ir. Han E.H. Meijer as his advisor. Following a year break at Océ Technologies he joined the Polymer Technology group.
His present interests include structure development during flow, interfacial phenomena, microfluidics, and polymer processing.

Distributive mixing examplesBelow a number of tools are downloadable to analyse prototype mixing flows. Matlab is needed to run these examples, where in some cases precomputed mapping matrices are prvodided, while in other cases, like the time-periodic sine flow, also the option is made for the user to build matrices.
